NCDD is excited to start a special series of webinars focused on skill building and topics of interest. Our first in this series will be held Wednesday, February 14, 2024, 3:00-4:30 pm Eastern/Noon-1:30pm Pacific. Register today to join us!
The webinar is titled, Honing Facilitative Leadership Competencies and will be led by Lori Britt, PhD, Professor and Director, James Madison University Institute for Constructive Advocacy and Dialogue, and Lisa-Marie Napoli, Director and Senior Lecturer, PACE (Political and Civic Engagement) Indiana University Bloomington. This is built upon their NCDD 2023 Conference session, and plans to help you build your skills in this area!
We see Facilitative Leadership as a mindset, habits, and skills that focus on not only bringing people together to engage collaboratively and productively across differences and around challenging topics, but importantly, an intention to cultivate this capacity in others. This webinar will overview the concept of Facilitative Leadership and engage participants in some activities focused on honing this capacity and evoking it in those we work with in our communities and on our campuses.
This webinar is being held as a fundraiser for NCDD, and registration fees are on a sliding scale of $15-$50 (self-selected). All registration fees are tax deductible and support NCDD staff and programming. If you have any concerns about the fees, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
